Daimler Sovereign Series I (1969-1973)

A new Series I XJ6-based Sovereign was introduced in October 1969. It was externally virtually identical to its Jaguar source car with the exception of its fluted grille and Daimler badging. Internally there were trim variations, such as the deletion of the wood door cappings fitted to the Jaguar. This Sovereign was offered with either the 2.8-litre or the 4.2-litre version of the XK engine.
